More Participant products
Does the Springbok fold?
The back folds down to the seat (like closing a book). And, the rear wheels have quick release axles. This makes the folded size a bit smaller than a similar X-Brace folding chair. The advantage for wheelchair users is that each piece is lighter and easier to lift. And, because the frame has fewer moving parts, it does not flex when pushing so more arm energy goes into forward motion. Also, the frame is stronger and has a much longer lifetime than an X-Brace frame.
Does the Springbok come in child sizes?
Springbok is not ideal for children, though it does come in narrow seat widths (250 mm, 10 inches). Typically, chairs for children have smaller rear wheels and lower seat height so that the user is lower to the ground and independent transfers are easier. Participant is planning a child size version of Springbok. If you are interested in this, please contact Sales.
Does Springbok come with a pressure relief cushion?
No. Participant offers a comfort cushion and several pressure relief cushions. These are sold separately. If requested, the cushions can be packed inside the shipping box with the Springbok wheelchair.
